Work with diving equipment

Working with diving is risky, and may only be carried out according to the special regulations about diving work.

There is a requirement that the diver should have a diving certificate corresponding to the Swedish professional diving certificate, and there should be a dive team consisting of at least three persons, the dive leader, diver, and reserve diver. Further demands are placed on the dive plan, risk assessment and equipment.

Common risks during diving are deficient equipment, that one is lacking the correct training, that communication does not work, problems with access devices, bad weather conditions, the lack of an emergency plan, bad coordination, and that access to hyperbaric chambers is not assured.

Those who dive regularly should undergo special medical checks.
